The case for keeping Austin Barnes around when A.J. Ellis returns

A.J. Ellis is due back from the disabled list on Tuesday. Yay-J! That likely means the end Austin Barnes on the 25-man roster for the time being. But it shouldn’t be. Getting Ellis back will be nice, as he’s pretty much all you could want or expect out of a 34-year-old backup catcher (some more framing would be nice, but so would a lot of things).

Let’s Get To Know Austin Barnes

Austin Barnes is one of the prospects that was acquired by the Dodgers in the Dee Gordon-for-Andrew Heaney-for-Howie Kendrick swap with the Marlins and Angels, and like the other players acquired by the Dodgers in the deal (Chris Hatcher, Enrique Hernandez), he’s a legitimate asset.
